In 2nd Class A, we have been learning about data. We decided to carry out a survey to find out the amount of traffic on the road outside our school. We recorded our results using a tally chart. On a cold and frosty morning, we had great fun counting all the vehicles that passed our gate. We discovered that cars were the most popular type of vehicle!
The children learned all about cubes, cuboidal, cylinders, cones, triangular prisms, spheres and pyramids in Maths. They were really good at spotting shapes around the classroom so we decided to take a walk around the grounds of the school. They found lots of shapes using their Maths eyes 👀 and were really surprised 😲 how many they spotted!!
In Maths, the children set out to find out if 3D shapes roll or slide. The children also experimented with stacking some of the shapes. They found that shapes that have flat faces stack easily é.g. Cube, cuboid, cylinder and shapes with curved faces slide and roll é.g. Cylinder, cones, spheres.
We looked at the effect of sugar on our teeth. A boiled egg, to represent the enamel, was placed in a jar of Coke and left overnight. Next a toothbrush 🪥 was used to take the dark colour off the shell of the egg using a circular motion. The children were amazed at how dark the shell had become because of the sugar in the coke. They said that they will be more mindful of brushing their teeth after drinking sugary drinks 🥤.
We learned all about Vikings and The Norse Gods in History during the month of November. The children presented their own individual projects based on various aspects of what they learned for example how they dressed, their weapons, longships, what their homes were like, how they came to settle in Ireland. They were so proud to stand up in front of the class and show their very impressive projects. 3rd class Superstars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👏👏
